2019 NVR Summer challenge – New Dates 1 to 3rd November

Following the announcement of our summer challenge a number of drivers have asked the club if they could have more time under the flood lights so to achieve this the summer challenge will now take place the 1st weekend in November when you will be guaranteed to be racing under the flood lights from early afternoon so plenty of track time. The new dates are Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd November. If you have already entered and unable to make this weekend then the club apologises for the date change.

You may have seen our Facebook page, you asked if it would be possible to race under the Nene’s floodlights so here is your chance. We are aiming to run a 60/80 car race meeting in a day for 1:5 and 1:8th racers.

Depending on the numbers we will either finish Saturday night with the semi finals or finials.
